The present study is part of an overall vision to preserve port infrastructure assets entrusted to National Ports Agency (ANP), with a view to continually adapting port services supply to traffic demand. The ANP is in charge of the Kingdom’s thirty-three (33) port sites spread along the coast and must preserve their infrastructure assets, especially protective structures, against the sea swell and other degrading factors. This study will offer ANP a full diagnosis of the structural state of the protective structures of 7 ports (Nador, Safi, Al Hoceima, Tangiers, Casablanca, Agadir), as well as define and plan the an optimum repair and strengthening programme for these structures. The choice of the first 7 ports selected is justified by the importance of these ports to national maritime activities and their considerable positive socio-economic impact. The study will be extended in its 2nd phase to the structures of the other port sites with a total linear distance estimated at 20 km. It has 2 components, to be implemented as follows: (i) Complete diagnosis of protective structures of the 7 ports; and (ii) Study on the strengthening proper of the said protective structures. For each port, the study will be divided into three (3) phases, namely: (i) Phase I concerning the preliminary design study (PDS); (ii) Phase II concerning the final design study (FDS); and (iii) Phase III concerning the preparation of the bidding documents (BDs).
The study aims at determining optimal options for strengthening the protective structures concerned and designing bidding documents (final design dossiers and bidding documents) for the necessary repair and strengthening works to be undertaken on the said structures. It will enable ANP to have complete files for implementing its port infrastructure rehabilitation programme and mastering the management of its newly inherited assets (better knowledge of the real behaviour of structures, prioritization of interventions and introduction of a time-bound works monitoring plan).
The direct beneficiaries of this study are National Ports Agency (ANP), as well as operators, managers and users of Moroccan ports.
